As 2012 comes to a close,
(NASDAQ: CTAS), the leader in secure document management, today announced it is now accepting submissions for the sixth annual
Good Riddance Day Contest
. Cintas is teaming with the co-organizers of New Year’s Eve in Times Square, the
Times Square Alliance
, to invite the public to say goodbye, once and for all, to the bad memories of 2012.
For this annual New Year’s tradition, Cintas will provide one of its mobile shredding trucks in Times Square for participants to watch their funny, outlandish and forgettable memories of 2012 get permanently discarded.
This year’s contest will name two winners, one individual and one business. To enter, individual contestants must submit a short description of what they would like to say “good riddance” to in 2013. Business contestants must submit an image and short description of how the Cintas team can help them say “good riddance” to a cluttered office and become more secure with their management of confidential information. One of the top 10 creative pictures, as voted on by the public, will be selected to receive a free document cleanout and a $1,000 office products gift card.
A panel of judges from the Cintas Document Management team and the Times Square Alliance will determine the winners. Whether you want to shred a picture of an old flame, mortgage documents, old tax records or a pile of medical bills, anything goes! Entries can be submitted at
Last year’s winner, Kathleen Selman of Tampa, Fla. won the contest for a chance to say “good riddance” to her husband’s long military deployments. Barrington Research Associates in Chicago was able to say “good riddance” to outdated and unnecessary files that cluttered their office.
“We are thrilled to be part of the Times Square New Year’s Eve Good Riddance Day for another year and are pleased to encourage business participation for the second year in a row,” said Dave Pollak, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Cintas. “Not only will individuals have the opportunity to get a fresh start to the New Year, but our contest also allows businesses to welcome 2013 with a clean and organized start.”
